Deletion Objection[edit]

Unfortunately, for us to have a listing of the Dewey Decimal Classification, the Chinese Library Classification, the Nippon Decimal Classification, and the Colon Classification system, and not to have a complete listing of the classification system of the single greatest library in the United States of America (and possibly the world) is a little unfair. LOC Classification is used in a great number of college and research libraries, and I think giving a full account of the system--with links--is worthy of an article. Granted the articles I've created aren't wikified, but I like to get the lists up first before completely linking them. If you want to avoid , we can put the entire classification on one page, but it would be inordinately long. NielsenGW 06:23, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

My main concern is that this will end up in a massive number of articles which seem listcruft. I think perhaps an "overview" page (such as is already given at Comparison of Dewey and Library of Congress subject classification is probably pretty sufficient-it's a lot more encyclopedic as an overview of the topic, rather then going into the minutiae. That should be left to external links. Maybe an "overview" table similar to the Dewey one could be done, with the main "letter" categories and wikilinks? Seraphimblade 14:21, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
On the Wikipedia:Contents page, there is a link to the classification systems, where I think it was the intent to organize the articles into the relevant classes, subclasses, and areas of organization. Main classes A, B, C, P, and Q are fleshed out with links. I hope and plan to do this with the other classes. I think it's more of an indexing technique rather than an actual encyclopedia article.

Schedule B[edit]

The pages for the Schedule B and all of its subpages was deleted on April 4. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Library of Congress Classification:Class B, subclass BS -- The Bible. I have started a discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Library of Congress Classification:Class B, subclass BS -- The Bible about how to deal with this. DGG 04:04, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
